What a wonderful restaurant! Italian family owned and run. Food is superb. Service is great, but you don’t want to be served too quickly - enjoy the atmosphere 😀 I normally only eat around two desserts a year. This one I could have eaten again...and again.More

We had a great meal here. The ambience was great, the food was delicious and very authentic and the service was wonderful. The restaurant is obviously family-owned and managed. and is authentically Italian. The pizzas in particular were extremely good. Antigua is expensive and it...was great to have good honest food at a good honest price.More

Our experience at this restaurant was completely consistent with all of the other reviews - excellent. But they have an amazing USP- they are quite literally a 5 minute cab ride from the airport. So we checked in bang on time at 19:30, got to...the restaurant at 19:50, and had a clear hour plus to eat a superb Italian dinner. Food and service were great. We had already discussed our plan with the restaurant when making our reservation and they were totally up for it and on it from the moment we arrived. They even booked our return taxi for us before we even got there. It all worked like clockwork and we were back at airport security by 21-15 for our 22-30 flight. 10/10. Why on earth would you want to spend over 1.5 hours in an airport when you can have a delightful Italian meal instead ? Great fun to do and a total no brainer !More

We enjoyed the chilled atmosphere, the welcoming staff and the great food. I had the, very nice, vegetarian soup of the day for starters, followed with the excellent snapper with roast potatoes for main course. The Creme Brûlée was okay but I regretted not choosing...the gelato. The portions were generous and the food delicious. Both our servers were delightful, funny and helpful. The setting was very nice, the weather was too windy for the terrace but our table near the window was very nice. We enjoyed our cocktails. Pricing was good value. We will happily return when we next visit Antigua.More

The restaurant is housed in a lovely house with a large veranda in front, an airy dining area and alfresco dining with views of the ocean. The hospitality and service was the best we’ve experienced on Antigua. We just had lunch but plan to enjoy...their extensive dinner options. The salads were wonderful (I had locally caught tuna with sesame and my husband raved about the prosciutto salad). And their pizza was also great,More

We went to this venue with high hopes. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by the staff who guided us to an amazing tables where looking out the shuttered window, the beach and sea were visible. The order was placed and the treatment by both...the staff and owner was so awesome that we felt pampered and cared for. I ventured with a vegetarian meal while my friends chose fish and meat dishes. All I can say is "it was fantastc!" We could not have been happier and pleased. It's a must do when visiting this country.More

Hello. Pasta dinners range in price from about $9 and up and main course range from $20 and up. Contact them directly and they can probably set up a birthday cake for you. ciao
